Buhari should have stopped ex-VP from leaving – Orji Kalu

The former Governor also said that he would have stopped Atiku from decamping, if he was in Buhari’s shoes.

Kalu said Buhari, as the Commander-In-Chief, should be interested in what is happening in the APC.

He said “The president should be more interested in the things of the party. As Commander-in-Chief, he should be interested in who leaves.

“If I was in position, I would have stopped the movement.

“The president should have consulted the governors in appointing men like Kwankwaso, Atiku into the system.

“He should have given them a ministerial position to pacify everybody and call governors to bring five names of candidates for ministerial slot, that way democracy becomes a participated one.

“I’m not scared of PDP coming back in 2019, they can’t return because no international agency likes them and they insisted PDP be pushed away

“All I know is that Buhari remains one candidate that has 10million followership even in the south east

“Even if south east has been marginalized Buhari has done better than past presidents that emerged from south east.”

Atiku says APC is dying

On Friday, November 24, 2017, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar resigned from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Atiku accused the APC of instituting a regime of a draconian clampdown on all forms of democracy within the party and the government it produced.

The former Vice-President of Nigeria, has described the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a dying party.

His words: “How can we have a federal cabinet without even one single youth?

“A party that does not take the youth into account is a dying party. The future belongs to young people.”

Although the ex-VP did not state which party he will be joining, there are unconfirmed reports that Atiku has been holding closed door meetings with leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
